The CrowdStrike software, however, should not be installed on non-Duke-owned personal or home computers. CrowdStrike was selected specifically for Duke's enterprise environment and the access it has to a computer is inappropriate for non-Duke-owned computers.
For personal and home computers, good anti-virus products are now widely (and often freely) available. As such, Duke is no longer offering a paid anti-virus solution for home or personal use. Instead, the Duke IT Security Office recommends using one of many popular free options such as:
- Windows Defender Antivirus for use on Windows 10
- Avast Free Antivirus or Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition for use on macOS, Linux, and earlier versions of Windows
While these software solutions are recommended and in use by many Duke IT Security Office members on their personal and home computers, you are welcome to use any solution--free or otherwise--that you feel provides acceptable security.
